                          Statement 
                by the Representative of the 
           Government of the Republic of Belarus 
at the Closing Plenary Meeting of the Twenty-seventh Session 
     of the Joint Compliance and Inspection Commission 
 
     Esteemed Mr. Chairman, 
 
     Esteemed Representatives and Members of the Delegations 
of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation, the 
United States of America, and Ukraine, 
 
     The results of JCIC-XXVII, which is concluding today, 
testify to the fact that our work has turned out to be quite 
fruitful.  We adopted eight documents.  Definite groundwork 
has been laid for the future. 
 
     I would like to emphasize especially the adoption during 
Part I of the session of four accords concerning the RSM-56, 
which regulate the Treaty-legal status of the new Russian 
missile within the framework of the Treaty.  In this 
connection, the Belarusian Delegation notes the goodwill and 
candid position of the Russian side in the expeditious 
resolution of this issue. 
 
     We welcome the adoption of JCIC Joint Statement No. 39 
on First Stages of SS-25 ICBMs Burned Without Nozzles 
Attached.  The Belarusian Delegation expresses satisfaction 
in connection with the completion of the examination of the 
question concerning reentry vehicle inspections of Trident II 
SLBMs. 
 
     The text of the Coordinated Statement on this question, 
agreed to by the Parties, is contained in the unclassified 
Attachment to this statement by the Head of the Delegation of 
the Republic of Belarus. 
 
     The Belarusian side expresses the hope that during the 
intersessional period the interested Parties will continue a 
substantive dialogue with a view to removing existing 
concerns associated with implementing and complying with the 
provisions of the Treaty.  Please be assured that the 
Treaty's participants can count on a constructive position 
from the Republic of Belarus during consideration of all 
questions which are included in the agenda of the JCIC. 
 
     In conclusion, I would like to express our appreciation 
to all the delegations for their cooperation and particularly 
to thank the interpreters and translators. 
 
     We wish everyone productive work during the 
intersessional period and a good trip home.
